Birth Of Bowling Shoes!
Silent film all about the making of some ugly assed pair of shoes is made interesting only because it's in silent AND in color (this looks like it was made in the late 1930's?). Also worth noting is the complete lack of safety using those awfully dangerous looking machines that do things like stamp leather and using nail guns. These are pure leather shoes here, no heel support or anything. Heaven forbid the life expectancy of these (or the workers)

The previous reviewer says WHY SHOULD WE CARE..If he lives in a rich country, his shoes will be made by poor people , low wages, long hours and with little political rights. Try going barefoot to gain some humanity
I found this at the bitter end of the Prelinger list and I can tell you, it's pretty dry stuff. Basically title cards walk you through the production of shoes. I don't know who made this or why we should care.
